Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style--Checks!

Checks are the subject for Ribbon Inspiration this week...we were to use some type of check in our design, be it ribbon or paper.


I've been playing with JustRite's new background stamps again--the two used here: "Fleur de Lis" and "Harlequin Script."  You can see all of the JustRite Background stamps HERE.



The handsome country fella is LaBlanche's "Daydreaming" Silicone Stamp. I stamped him with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored him up with Copic Sketch Markers. 
He sits upon a crimped panel of kraft cardstock, 
layered over the stamped background panels.

A Bo Bunny "Welcome Home Button"  layered over May Art's Gingham Ribbon adds the final touch.

All linked supplies are from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.



As always, this is a Mystery Blog Candy, meaning the winner will be drawn from comments on one of today’s participating blogs, so leaving a comment on each blog will greatly increase your chances of winning, but only one comment per blog, please. The winner will be selected at 6 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesday, March 20th and will be posted on Sharon's blog on Wednesday or thereafter.
